Blood Orange Margarita

Tres Margaritas

This weekend a friend from college was in town. After a decedent meal of tapas, I was in charge of keeping everyone's glass full as the conversation flowed. I started with a basic margarita on the rocks. The next round was a blood orange margarita, inspired by the sumptuous blood oranges left over from one of the tapas. That was followed by a grapefruit margarita. It was a long conversation, we had a lot of catching up to do.

Blood Orange Margarita

2 oz tequila
1 oz tripe sec
1/2 oz simple syrup
Juice of 1/2 blood orange

Stir ingredients together with ice in a highball glass rimmed with salt.
